Lecture Synopsis

The Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix engineering team will take us on an in-depth multi-disciplinary journey through the evolution of a championship-winning Formula 1 car. Mercedes-Benz engineers will discuss all aspects of the car’s configuration, show us some of the theory and design that they use, and describe the compromises between the various disciplines that are needed to create winning race cars, from controlling vortices to crushing carbon fibres to integrating the most powerful F1 engine around.
